Summer Camp

City Garden School is pleased to offer a summer camp inspired by our love of Waldorf education. Your child will be immersed in the natural world at Rock Bridge State Park, warm breezes and sunshine, along with a balance of engaging games, crafts,  skill-building, and arts. Our camp program is proudly managed by City Garden School faculty members.  
Celebrate the joys of summer through a variety of stimulating activities, exploration in nature, music, and co-operative games. The leaders of camp are experienced teachers and CGS alumni-counselors who provide leadership and structure for a unique camp experience. 
The alluring scents and sunny days of summer tempt us to trade work and routine in favor of time outdoors. Our teachers understand children's desire to daydream and explore during the summer season. They consciously plan experiences that allow children to unwind from the school year into a new “holiday” mood and a sense of freedom and exploration.
Designed to complement our school year programs, summer offerings engage young children with a balance of summer activities that strengthen their developing skills and capacities.
City Garden School hosts six weeks of Summer Camp for incoming 1st - 6th graders at Rockbridge State Park. Each session will have unique curriculum and daily activities. 
Camp will be led by teachers this summer along with assistance from other passionate adventurers. 
Campers may attend just one week or all the available weeks.
Campers are outside the entire morning exploring the woods and the creek. We love catching frogs and crayfish, hiking, observing the forest, exploring Connors Cave, singing songs, and playing games.
